Walk to the Blues

  • Jun 13, 2014 · 5:15 PM
  • Smithsonian metro station, mall exit

Start off this summer evening with a brisk 3-4 mile walk past the monuments and end at the Columbia Pike Blue Festival in the South Arlington.  This part of the festival will occur in Penrose Square.  You can purchase your dinner at one of the surrounding locations (including but not limited to Rappahannock Coffee, which sells sandwiches and other items, Pedro & Vinny's burrito cart, as well as Thai and Tex-Mex).  Eat in the square while enjoying the Blues.  

Please bring a SmartTrip card or some cash.  We will hop on a bus to take us up Columbia Pike from the Pentagon.

5:15:  Meet on the Mall at the Smithsonian metro exit/entrance.  Walk past 5 or so monuments and memorials.  

6:20 (approximate):  Get on a bus at the Pentagon to go up the Pike.

6:30 (approximate):  Arrive at the Blues Festival.  Optionally pick up dinner at one of the surrounding establishments.

7:30 (approximate):  Disperse or enjoy the Blues on your own.

To get back to the metro, you can take a bus to either the Orange line or the Blue/Yellow line or you could ride a CABI bike.
